OpenAIRE workshop on Legal and Sustainability Issues for Open Access Infrastructures

5 November, 2013, Vilnius, Lithuania

Vilnius300x255

We are Live streaming the workshop from 9:00 - 15:30:  http://en.ktu.lt/openaire 

Open access infrastructures need to be maintained in the long-run. At present these infrastructures tend to develop within project environments, and approaches in setting them up as permanent infrastructures remains to be answered. In addition, any e-infrastructure which primarily relies on harvesting external data sources (e.g. repositories) need to be fully aware of any legal implications for re-use of this knowledge, and further application by 3rd parties. 

OpenAIRE is currently carrying out two studies into these legal and sustainability issues. The legal study will put forward recommendations as to applicable licenses that appropriately address scientific data in the context of OpenAIRE. This study will also examine scope of the database protection right, different types of usage and where re-use infringement might lie.

The sustainability and business model for OpenAIRE study will examine the costs and maintenance of the elements of a permanent infrastructure, identify the key stakeholders and will put forward a viable business model for OpenAIRE.

This workshop intends to present results from these studies and broaden the discussion to involve other stakeholders.

Premise of the workshop

The goals of this consultation workshop are:

  1. To test preliminary results of the OpenAIRE legal and sustainability studies (in progress).
  2. To get input from OpenAIRE partners, NOADs, EC and other experts with experience of making OA service/infrastructures sustainable.

Focus areas of the event will include:

  • Exploration of available OA business models
  • Definition of the components of an OA infrastructure
  • How to sustain OA services within a permanent infrastructure
  • What are the legal parameters for re-use of research data
  • Options for licensing research data

This workshop is aimed at: policy and decision makers, librarians, scientists who re-use data, data mining practitioners, EC officers, ICT delegates, OpenAIRE NOADs
